Reports of Fetterman boost caused chief of staff and media to make one unbelievable health claim
Mystery around Senator John Fetterman continues to swirl.
He has yet to be seen since checking himself into a hospital for depression.
And reports of a Fetterman boost caused his chief of staff and the media to make one unbelievable health claim.
John Fetterman was voted into office despite suffering a stroke and barely being able to talk during the Pennsylvania senatorial general election.
Shortly after Fetterman narrowly defeated Dr. Mehmet Oz, he admitted himself into the hospital for depression, raising legitimate concerns about his fitness for office.
However, polls showed that a majority of Americans approved of Fetterman seeking help for depression.
A Redfield & Wilton Strategies poll conducted for Newsweek showed that among 1,500 eligible voters, 33% of respondents strongly approved of the senator taking leave, and another 28% said they approved of his move.
The split between Joe Biden voters and Donald Trump voters was also similar.
Among people who voted for Biden in 2020, 32% said they strongly approved of Fetterman taking leave, and 30% approved.
Among 2020 Trump voters, 37% strongly approved, and 25% approved.
The support for Fetterman perhaps spurred spokesman Joe Calvello to claim that “John will be out soon…Over a week but soon. Recovery is going really well. We have an amazing team at Walter Reed.”
But there does not seem to be any real timetable, and Republican efforts to get health status updates have been rebuffed.
Pennsylvania Republicans called into question Fetterman’s ability to serve and asked the senator to “show us he is alive and well, and if he is unable to do so, we call upon our elected Representatives in Washington, Senator [Bob] Casey and Congressman [Guy] Reschenthaler, to intervene immediately.”
Sean Logue, chair of the Washington County Republican Party, said that the state GOP has not received anything.
Logue explained, “We have been professional and polite, but the only responses we have gotten are hate mail or calls where our request has been twisted into an attack on people with mental-health challenges…The campaign lied about Senator Fetterman’s fitness for office, and threatened anyone who questioned it.”
Common sense said that Fetterman’s inability to form coherent sentences after suffering a major stroke was going to be a problem.
But Democrats demand that people turn off their brains and just listen to spoon-fed propaganda.
Never-Trumper Nicolle Wallace brought on one Democrat who accused Republicans of something insane
The Democratic Party is fully in lockstep with the D.C. establishment.
Their previous skepticism about the CIA and FBI is long gone.
And Never-Trumper Nicolle Wallace brought on one Democrat who accused Republicans of something insane.
Missouri Senator Josh Hawley ran Claire McCaskill out of office in 2018, but so-called mainstream media outlets continue to bring her on as if she has anything insightful to say about politics.
McCaskill appeared with Never-Trumper Nicolle Wallace to make a laughable accusation against Republicans.
She attempted to smear Republicans as Communists.
McCaskill said, “If you recall back in 2020, one of the accusations that was hurled against Democratic candidates, many times very unfairly, is that they were socialists. They were socialists. These were socialists and this was attributed to maybe some of the margin shrinkage among Latino voters, especially people who had come from countries where socialism had squashed their freedom and their ability to succeed.”
When members of Congress like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Mondaire Jones, Jamaal Bowman, and others call themselves Democratic Socialists, it’s easy to understand why Democrats get stuck with that label.
And that doesn’t even touch on their actual socialistic policies.
During an election postmortem in 2020, when Democrats underperformed, moderate Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger told her colleagues to never mention socialism again while campaigning.
McCaskill continued, “You are now looking at a political combo, two people endorsing each other in politics, and one of them is running for president of the United States, and the other one is one of the largest and most important communist leaders of a socialist society. That’s stunning. Donald Trump loves communism. He loves socialism.”
This is a mind-numbing statement.
McCaskill is under the impression that Russia is still a communist country.
As for the preposterous idea that Trump “loves communism,” during a State of the Union address, Trump said, “America will never become a socialist country,” and Bernie Sanders had a scowl on his face.
McCaskill added, “And by the way, Ron DeSantis seems to kind of like it too since he wants the government to control business in Florida. So what’s ironic to me is you’re not hearing — can you imagine for a minute if a Democratic candidate for president was playing cozy and was getting endorsed by a communist leader in this world? Can you imagine how people’s heads would explode in the Republican Party? They have their leading candidate that is playing footsie with one of the most high-profile socialists and communist leaders in the world. And all of them are, like, ‘Oh well, you know. It’s Donald, he’s looking after us.’”
McCaskill doubled down on her embarrassing line that Russia is a communist country.
DeSantis is not seeking to control businesses in Florida.
That’s why businesses are flocking to the Sunshine State and leaving places like California and Illinois.
The Democrats aren’t even good at propaganda anymore.
Ron DeSantis issued one tweet that launched the harpies on “The View” into full meltdown mode
The View has been given their marching orders to attack Ron DeSantis.
The show routinely goes after the Florida Governor.
But DeSantis just issued one tweet that launched the harpies on The View into full meltdown mode.
Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, and Tucker Carlson are probably the three most hated political figures by the Democratic Party.
Their influence and effectiveness are undeniable, which is why the press attack them so ferociously.
And the women of The View are after Governor DeSantis again, this time for supporting Daniel Penny, the Marine who was charged with second-degree manslaughter after intervening in a New York City subway incident.
Jordan Neely, a homeless man who had been arrested 42 times, was behaving erratically and threatening and menacing passengers when Penny put him in a submission hold.
Penny and two other men restrained Neely, who was breathing when they let him go, but Neely ultimately lost consciousness and did not wake up.
The tragic incident was instantly turned into a polemic for the Democrats to exploit.
DeSantis shared a fundraising campaign for Penny’s legal defense, which has raised $2.5 million, and the women of The View were very upset about this.
DeSantis wrote on Twitter, “We must defeat the Soros-Funded DAs, stop the Left’s pro-criminal agenda, and take back the streets for law abiding citizens. We stand with Good Samaritans like Daniel Penny. Let’s show this Marine…America’s got his back.”

RINO co-host Ana Navarro attacked DeSantis for engaging in culture wars, whining that “he’s attached himself like a parasite to every single manufactured culture war issue he can and people, particularly Floridians, see through it. It’s an old shtick now: drag queens, Mickey Mouse, AP black history courses. I mean, it’s just crazy.”
Those Floridians handed DeSantis a 19-point victory in his reelection bid.
Navarro would never accuse Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of engaging in “manufactured” culture wars when she accused Penny of “murder” or when Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley said Neely was “lynched.”
Sunny Hostin added, “He’s in the business of otherizing people. But what I will say: what scares me about Ron DeSantis is that he offers Trumpism without Trump…And let’s remember, he’s a lawyer. He’s Harvard and Yale-trained and educated. He’s not a stupid man. So he is really leaning into Trumpism, knowing what the base wants. And that scares me. I mean, he actually tweeted out about the — you know, the young man that was killed on a subway with a chokehold by a former Marine – Jordan Neely. He is actually fundraising for his defense, and he’s made $2 million already for killing a young black man.”
Hostin and the Democrats cannot see anything but race.
If Neely were white, the story would not have made a blip.
But the Democrats and their media allies saw an opportunity to make some political hay.
Karine Jean-Pierre retweeted one video that made Democrats cringe
The Biden administration does not exactly inspire confidence.
Karine Jean-Pierre does not help matters with her awkward and bumbling press briefings.
And Jean-Pierre retweeted one video that made Democrats cringe.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is clearly in over her head.
Jean-Pierre is not nearly as skilled at spinning the truth as predecessor Jen Psaki, who now spouts the Biden administration line on her own MSNBC show.
Jean-Piere makes almost as many gaffes as her boss, Joe Biden.
In the midst of the fight over the debt ceiling, Jean-Pierre made a truly embarrassing goof.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy wants to cap spending at 2022 levels, which is unconscionably high, but Democrats balk at such spending limits.
In a desperate attempt to shift blame to the Republicans, who are asking for meager spending cuts, Biden said, “I made it clear: America is not a deadbeat nation. We pay our bills.”
The D.C. Swamp pays its bills by printing money and triggering inflation, which destroys wealth and serves as a hidden tax.
Nevertheless, the “deadbeat nation” talking point has made the rounds throughout the Democrat Media Complex.
Jean-Pierre repeated it during a press briefing, but got tongue-twisted and referred to America as “the United State,” as in one state.
Conservative website Townhall.com posted the gaffe on Twitter, and Jean-Pierre retweeted it, oblivious to the fact that the site was poking fun at her.

Townhall contributor Matt Vespa wrote that Jean-Pierre “can’t go off script, and apparently, she doesn’t even know which media outlets aren’t friendly to her or her boss because she retweeted us.”
Karine Jean-Pierre retweeting @townhallcom's tweet pointing out her gaffe about how the "United State" (just the one, apparently) is not a deadbeat nation" is peak Biden admin disarray.
p.s. Biden is still a deadbeat granddad. pic.twitter.com/H9CI0xjVCP

Vespa also pointed out that Jean-Pierre cannot delete the tweet because it must be preserved for the Congressional record.
Jean-Pierre has made countless errors as press secretary.
In one instance she referred to Biden as “President Obama.”
She also has nonsensical answers to basic questions during briefings.
She recently got called out by Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy for providing a fake statistic on Biden’s border crisis.
Jean-Pierre said, “When it comes to illegal immigration, you’ve seen it come down by more than 90%. And that’s because of this, the actions that this president has taken.”
Doocy asked, “You said yesterday that, when it comes to illegal migration, you’ve seen it come down by more than 90 percent. Where did that number come from?”
After a hectic back-and-forth, Jean-Pierre admitted, “So I was speaking to the parolee program. As you know, the President put in place a parolee program to deal with — to deal with certain countries on — on ways that we can limit illegal migration. And we have seen — the data has shown us that it has gone down by more than 90 percent. That was what I was speaking to.”
In other words the 90% drop in illegal immigration was not true.
